Parking Arm Gates that hit Pedestrians


Mike Panish, Door & Gate Expert Witness, gets many calls from both plaintiff and defense personal injury attorneys asking for his help to inspect and analyse the circumstances leading up to accidents that happen to pedestrians who are hit by pivoting parking arm gates in parking lots. It is important that he inspect the premises to check the functions of the gate and gate operators, and also inspect the layout of the parking lot. Many of these accidents occur when dedicated pedestrian walkways are not present and the pedestrian has to walk through the gate opening to get in or out of the parking lot. There are certain "standards" that the gate manufacturers must adhere to.
